Who’s already eaten their weight in holiday baked goods!
*avoids eye contact*
Vegas and I just had a conversation about clean eating… and how it’s important to enjoy the holidays without freaking out that you’ve just ruined all your hard work (imagine dramatic music).
Every year in January I like to do a cleanse… except I don’t like the word cleanse. What I do is a super clean jump start for my body. It’s 21 days of unprocessed, anti-inflammatory eating. The first 10 days are even vegan! It may sound hard, but after the first 5 days, your body adjusts and you start enjoying it. I love how creative it makes me in the kitchen. After I finish, my energy is insane, my metabolism is on fire (and it stays that way!), and I’ve usually lost 5-8 lbs.
This year, I decided to share the jump start with you all! If your body could use a reset in January and can commit for 21 days, click here to answer a VERY short questionnaire/interest form.
Enough of the healthy talk! It’s time for a holiday #WIAW. Be sure to link up to Jenn’s WIAW baby at the bottom!
As always, we started with our morning cocktail. I then choked down like half a cup of coffee.
We haven’t had french toast in a while, so I decided to surprise Vegas with a more decadent breakfast than usual. I was going to make it the “standard” way, but then I saw the eggnog in the fridge. Eggnog French toast? Why not?
Eggnog French Toast
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 C eggnog
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 slices of bread
Scramble the egg, nog, cinnamon, and vanilla. Soak the bread. Fry it up in a pan, plate it, and enjoy!
I didn’t take a picture, but we’re eating my Spaghetti Squash Pie. These pics are prettier anyway. 😉
This has been dinner two nights in a row. It’s been so busy that I just haven’t been down for cooking. Truth be told, we like these charcuteries just as well. The wine helps.
I’m ready for Christmas to come and go. Bring it, 2018!
Are you ready for a reset in January?
Do you do charcuterie/cheeseboard dinners?
